Mongolian, spoken in Mongolia and nearby regions, is diversified into several dialects. However, the most commonly used is the kalka , which is spoken in the country’s capital, Ulaanbaatar. This makes up the majority of the Mongolian-speaking community. It evolved from the traditional Old Mongolian spoken in the Old Mongol Empire. However, during the 20th century, the Cyrillic alphabet was established as the writing system throughout the country. This was due to the Soviet occupation until the 1990s, when the use of the traditional alphabet was again encouraged. However, most speakers still use the Cyrillic alphabet.


On the economic side, Mongolia’s economy can be said to be very basic. Most of the annual income comes from the capital, where two thirds of the Mongolian population is concentrated and where the tertiary sector is dominant. However, the rest of the country is very sparsely populated, and Mongolia is the least densely populated country in the world. Elsewhere in the country, Mongolian nomads live in very rudimentary communities.

In this sense, a place can be made for the translation of Mongolian or the interpretation of Mongolian between dialects to facilitate communication between communities, as they are very isolated from each other. For this reason, the need for interpretation, which is essential for the understanding and provision of essential services that citizens may require, is very important.


On the other hand, the aspect of language translation is very important in the regions of China where it is spoken. In these regions, there are large Mongolian communities and there is a clear interest in a communication bridge between Mongolian and Chinese speakers.

This is also the case in the Russian provinces where the language is spoken, and interpretation for the provision of public services is important in this respect, as it is essential to provide assistance to everyone regardless of the language they speak, so it is vital that well-trained interpreters are available to provide a quality and, above all, helpful service.


Mongolian is a language belonging to the Mongolian language family. Some linguists argue that it belongs to the Altaic macro-family of languages. These include other languages such as Turkish, Korean and Japanese, but this theory has been widely criticised, so it is not a universal statement. It is the official language in Mongolia, where it is widely spoken, and is a co-official language in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region in northern China. It is also spoken in some provinces of China such as Liaoning, Xinjiang, Jilin, Qinghai, Heilongjiang and, to a minority extent, in Gansu.

It is also spoken in some regions of Russia, such as the Republic of Buryatia and the Republic of Kalmykiya. It is also spoken in other countries such as Kyrgyzstan. Although there are several dialects of Mongolian, they share a unified writing system using the Cyrillic alphabet in Mongolia, while Inner Mongolia uses the traditional alphabet.


In terms of the number of speakers, there are around 3 million native speakers of Mongolian, as the majority of Mongolians use it as their first language. In Inner Mongolia there are about 4 million speakers, and in China there are about 5 million. In total, therefore, there are around 12 million speakers in all.
